  • I have no medical training, but I believe a blood clot will kill you instantly once it reaches the brain so i would assume even someone in a coma would not survive a blood clot.

  • I have had blood clots in the brain and lungs, and I was in a coma for about 2 days, you can survive, just it depends on how long the person is in a coma for, the longer they are "sleep"

  • sorry got cut off, the longer they "sleep" the harder it is to wake up, but blood clots can eventually go away, GL

  • Yes, they can. Many people survive surgery to remove blood clots in the brain, it just depends on where the clot is and how quickly it was noticed.
